About the Event

Julia Donaldson is launching a weekly broadcast in partnership with Macmillan and Scholastic, to entertain families during the Covid-19 pandemic.

The Gruffalo's Child author will perform stories, songs and poems, and will be joined by her husband.

Illustrators from her books, including Axel Scheffler, Rebecca Cobb, Lydia Monks, David Roberts and Nick Sharratt will also feature.

Donaldson said: "During this very difficult time, I am glad to be able to do something useful from the confines of my home.

"I hope that my stories, songs and poems bring a little cheer to those who read them or tune in to my new weekly broadcasts. I look forward to sharing some favourites and some lesser known works with families everywhere."

The first broadcast will be live on Macmillan and Scholastic's websites today (2nd April) at 4pm, beginning with a performance of A Squash and Squeeze (Macmillan Children's Books.)
